The record consists of 22 tracks with audio field recordings, made during live broadcasts of men on cam, from sex cam sites. The tracks function as portraits of contemporary masculinities in the digital flow, negotiating the everyday, capturing the acoustic image of the body in domestic space. Coded domesticities unveil sonically through the spatial conditions of the broadcasts with background sounds from television programs and music mixing with the given sonics of the sex cam platforms and tech: sex toy vibrations; message and tip alerts; the tapping of the keyboard and the camer’s voice. Some tracks contain direct sexual content while others do not. All tracks are short segments of long duration broadcasts, with the camer often hours alone awaiting validation within the safety of a private home or rented space (a sealed condition) then broadcast live (online for all to see).
